Benatia back – reserves take part in squad programme

Another Bayern pro has returned from international duty: Mehdi Benatia. Two days after advancing to the next round of World Cup qualifying along with his Moroccan team-mates, the defender completed a regenerative training session at Säbener Strasse. At the same time the FCB pros, joined by many reserve players, worked out under Pep Guardiola's auspices. Manuel Neuer, Jérôme Boateng, Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski were out on the pitch again: they had resumed the Bayern squad programme on Monday after returning from their national teams.
